The interview explained if I moved on from the first round I would have two to three more interviews with managers in the company that were case based. I was asked standard questions a bout my background. The only apparent area of concern from the interviewer was my salary expectations, which were already low for the industry. I was no contacted for a second interview.

Very Difficult Interview
Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Loft9 Consulting in February 2010.
Interview Details – This was a very intense and comprehensive interview process over a 4-week period. Interview 1 was a standard 1:1 "get to know you" 1-hour interview with one of the founding partners. It included topics such as why I was looking for work, why consulting, what do I know about Loft9 and what are my compensation expectations.
Interview 2 was with the other founding partners and included a deeper dive into my experience and skill set. This interview was more focused on my resume and relevant experience. It also included a live case study in which I was given a business problem and asked to walk through a solution.
Prior to interview 3, I was given a written case study to complete. The case study tested my project management and business analyst skills. While I had a couple days to complete the case study, I was instructed to spend a limited amount of hours actually doing the research and writing of the study. I think this portion of the interview process really helps candidates showcase their skills outside of the 1:1 interview process.
Interview 3 was a very intense, 90 minute interview with both founding partners. This interview included a review of my case study, another review of my skills, questions around my desire to work for Loft9, a large number of behavior questions, another verbal case study and a number of other well planned and well thought questions.
Overall, this was easily the most unique and intense interview process I have ever been in. I would highly recommend a lot of preparation prior to each interview. More importantly, I would recommend honing your overall interview skills. By the time I reached the final interview, I had probably been through 10-plus interviews with various firms in the industry, which helped me with my preparation and confidence.
